“Love from the center of who you are; don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.
Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.”

I love this…sometimes I need a straight forward, in-your-face translation! Happy Sunday 🙂

Like Bev I love being reminded to love everyone as God loves–even our enemies! I try always to love as deeply as I can–like Jesus!
Thank you for this encouragement! Lord, I pray for myself as well as all these women that we would not burn out or become weary in doing good but that you would bless us with a heavenly perspective.
There is no other way in saying it. Well said!

Loved the last sentence
of this scripture to make friends with nobodies. I think I learned this from my daughter. She always sought out people who got ignored. Don’t mean to sound like Sally saint, but I do look for those people in church and anywhere else that need some loving and extra attention. Just want to bless them and make them feel special.Thanx
